Re: Tamoxifen and Bloating

Hi yeah, I have been taken tamoxifen for just over a year now, and like you found it really hard in the beginning, it's only a little better now. I too put on a bit of weight mainly on my tummy. I decided to take this into hand and have gone on a diet with hard exercise, it is working, but the results are very slow. As for constipation, I found taken manuka honey with yogurt every morning helps.
Good luck

Tamoxifen and Bloating

Hello Folks

this is my first time on here, I was just after some answers regarding Tamoxifen and feeling Bloated

I have been on Tamoxifen since April 2012 and I felt very ill to start with. the hot flushes and Night sweats were awful but thankfully these have calmed down a fair bit.

I wouldn't say I feel great now but better than I did, Huge weight gain though, tiredness, emotional etc. Periods stopped about a year ago, so that's a bonus.

For the last 4-5 months I have felt very bloated and feeling very uncomfortable, along with this is constant pains in my tummy, which feel like period pain or ovulation pain. Along with this I have constipation and also upset tummy, this comes and goes.

I was wondering if anyone else has had these symptoms

Many thanks
